was utterly spectacular.

(and early, too - around 6:15am).

This is how it looked from Lake Shore Drive.

(The blob at the bottom left of the horizon is not an apparition, but a water intake crib*).


*A long, long time ago, when I was a triathlete, PeeKay and I used to do early-morning training swims in Lake Michigan (in those days, the bathrooms at the North Avenue boathouse were often smeared with feces, for some reason). One day, a gentleman struck up a conversation with us after our swim. He asked why those little buildings were in the middle of Lake Michigan.

"They're cribs," said PeeKay.

"Cribs?" the man asked, incredulous.

"CREE-ibs?" he said again, elongating the word.

"You mean people live out there?"
